Collection: Máscaras

These masks are part of dances and represent characters that play different roles within the history of the conquest in Guatemala.
For a long time these performances were the only "hidden" form of communication that the natives could have. 
 
These masks are inspired in Guatemalan folk art and the dances are still performed in the present.
